What is it?

Naga is collaborating with the FBI CAAA to donate 200+ backpacks to 6th, 7th and 8th-grade students in the Parkrose School District. Some of you remember our participation in this project last year. We were able to provide 75 backpacks, but there were over 300 students waiting in line when we got there! Having to turn away 200+ students was brutal. This year we are bumping up our goal.

200+ Backpacks by August 2020!

We can do this! We are working in tandem with the FBI & the Citizen’s Academy Alumni Association. This is a big ask so we are starting now. 

How does it work?

Bring your donations to Naga anytime, whether random supplies or completed backpacks and Goeroe Silvia will take them to FBI HQ for distribution on August 28th. Below is the list of supplies needed as well as clear direction to help keep this massive undertaking organized and flowing smoothly.

Wait, what does this have to do with training Poekoelan at Naga?

Giving of ourselves and sharing with others (we call it selfless service) is a huge part of our training. You will see it in the students who help instruct, in the projects we take on in our community and in the myriad ways our advanced students give of themselves so freely. This is a core value at Naga.

Here’s the List:

Below is the list of school supplies utilized by Parkrose School Districted.  The middle school hosts 6th, 7th, 8th graders. You will notice some of the items below are designated for only 7th or 8th , or both 7th and 8th graders.  If you choose to purchase for a complete backpack, please indicate which age you purchased for, this will help with inventory on our end. *** Please note the three items in bold are wishes of the school/teachers for their classrooms and not required for the backpack.***
